For the last year or so we have been contemplating closing our Tyler Pink Tumbleweed location and I am sad to say that it has finally become time to make that move.
This year is going to bring about so many changes I sometimes feel slightly overwhelmed by them all. Some of them are exciting answers to years of prayer + waiting, some of them are necessities, and some are simply the end of a season and God closing the door on them. This decision to close our Tyler location in a combination of the last two of these and is oh so bittersweet.
The last three years of working with my mom and sister on this store has been an amazing adventure. I think we have all learned a lot: about ourselves, each other, and our family. But there are seasons for everything so we must adjust and move to our next chapters. My dad retired this last year, excitingly earlier than we had all thought, so without the store my parents will get to really enjoy this time. I am so happy they will get to travel (especially to Midland to spoil this new grand baby) and really dive into their church and community full time. Natalie will have one less thing to juggle with her so full life of being mommy to two, a new home, and full time nursing job. And I will be able to focus more on growing the other two stores and of course figure out the whole mom thing this coming year. All of this plus the more practical side of things, like leases and such, means that by the end of January our doors in Tyler will be closed.
We will be sad to not see our lovely customers + employees on such a regular basis but we know it is time. The Lord has plainly told us all that this is His best for us so we are choosing to listen. On the bright side…that means our entire inventory is going on major sale. So stop by and grab your bargain!
Thank you all for your support in our adventure the last three years.
Love, Allison, Kathy, + Natalie
